My review

The Good:

The opportunities that are offered through the Academy such as Fire fighting, Sea term ( traveling on a ship to different countries), and being part of a regiment of cadets.

The Bad:

The worst part of the Academy are standing watches in the dorms and the ship TS Kennedy. You are picked at random including holidays, not paid to do the watches, and not allowed to do anything, not even homework, or read a book during watch. The times for watch can affect you because you could have watch from 12 to 4 in the morning and it messes up your sleep and eating pattern.

Would I do it again?

No, Their were more negatives the positives about the academy. Fire fighting was the only part I really enjoyed.
